Happy Holiday to all who can … Here is the sea, here is the beach, here am I with a 60 years old Bolex double 8 camera, I am happy to have access to film material still being produced in the Czech Republic (Foma!) and being sold for a low price in Berlin. I have warm boots and friendly people who surround me and wish me well. I am old and still sizzling. I know what love is. Can I do something to push the magic pendulum direction better and caring and soft and powerful intelligence and … fuck off, greedy lowbrain moneyeaters! We’re gonna erase you.
I set up my Illy coffee pinhole camera in my kitchen, a piece of photo paper inside, and let it peacefully expose. 3 days and 3 nights long. Capturing my wild untidy beloved kitchen!

Today: Helena, painter and writer! Welcome!
This camera is exactly 60 years old! It still works, it buzzes and purrs. We filmed land, soil, mud, me, puddles, reflections, double exposures, electricity poles … and a new film comes into my mind. Travelling through wormholes. Getting stuck in a universe. The film starts to live in my head, starting to evolve slowly. I love that!
